Well my favorite holiday has come and gone and now I'm left with great memories and a boat load of candy. This year I was super spoiled with 3 days of events and so just one costume vision would not do!
Thursday we had an industry party where I debuted my Rosie the Riveter costume! Thanks Mom for getting the coveralls at Fleet Farm, definitely completed the look. It was a great event and people came out in such creative costumes!
Friday my friend Hannah threw a great house party, one of those parties where you have no idea how you fit 60 people into a duplex and everyone compliments on each other's costumes.
I made quite the fashionably late entrance to the party since I had quite the crafting emergency, which required me to hand stitch my flapper head band and 4 hours to set the pin curls which paid off with my faux bob. Find the tutorial here.
My make up was quite the undertaking as well, clearly in the 1920s they hadn't learned the if you do a heavy lip, do a lighter eye rule so it was full on vamp make up. Click here for the full tutorial.
I had so much fun with the flapper and felt like I stepped right out of Boardwalk Empire.
Saturday was a great night out in Uptown with the Statue of Liberty and Mortal Kombat. Rosie won over Zombie Amy Winehouse since I didn't think my skin would react the best to the zombie make up.
Another successful Halloween and I'm already plotting ideas for next year! How did you spend your Halloween?
